TLT: Boredom Buster

three line tales, week 228: a man floating against a wall in Brooklyn

I only went to the party because I was bored out of my skull, and that’s why I talked to the peculiar guy who was leaning against the wall, too. 

I told him to go ahead when he told me he did magic tricks and would I want to see one, expecting him to maybe produce a flower from behind my ear – it took me a moment to realise he’d begun to float.

Now I come to see him every day, trying to figure out how he does it – I keep failing but hey, I haven’t been bored in weeks.
